A Dark and Rainy Night...

The time has come,
the time is near
to retell a story
of a day full of cheer.

Halloween arrived
after much anticipation.
Who knew we’d have such
yucky precipitation?

But let’s start from the beginning
which really must be
from Friday night when
carving we did see.

Three pumpkins were created
with the help of the teens.
Pumpkin guts and knives
did create such a scene.

What awesome pumpkins
the kids did create
by working together,
oh my, isn’t it great?

Begging day did
finally arrive
Much to the delight of those
near the age of five.

After the arrival of friends
and pizza for dinner,
Costumes were donned
to make the day a winner.

The boy decided to join
in the game.
With the help of the girlfriend,
a rock star, he became.

Old mom was just mom,
but friends dressed up too.
Check out the pilot and flapper
who joined our fair zoo.

Toss in their son
with a scary, green face
We were ready to go and
knock place to place.

Armed with candy buckets
and adult drinks in our hands,
out the door we headed
as one great big band.

When what should our bodies
feel from the sky?
Rain! How can that be?
Oh me, me, oh my my.

Girls complained from the get-go,
I am cold, I am wet.
I want to go home!
Mom cries, No, not yet!

We managed to make it
through two of our streets
before we decided to
head home for treats.

Loot is unloaded,
trading begins.
What will you give me,
another kid grins!

Another Halloween has now
passed us by,
But memories will linger
until the next time.

Great poem! What a bummer about the rain...
Love the pumpkins! It's definitely apparent that you have girls in your household. None of our pumpkins had flowers or hearts!
